TOP BOY returned to NETFLIX on 13th September 2019 with the help of Drake.  Series 1 and 2 were acclaimed for their bold grade, this time Thomas Urbye worked in 4K HDR across ten episodes.  Joe Anderson was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Cinematography for his work on the opening block.

Urbye comments: “Grading this series was extremely rewarding.  Working first with Joe then Chloë, Adam and Rina – with all of them getting on board for what is an extremely bold, colourful and dynamic grade.  As ever, Yvonne, Alistair and Charles were extremely supportive and entrusting with the look of the series which gives me the freedom to be unconstrained in my creativity.  I believe this to be my best work to date, and I am incredibly excited for viewers around the world to see this in 4K HDR on NETFLIX”
